I’d love to hear your memories of this place – it sounds so fun!

Mrs. Mary Patterson hugging her son George, whom she hadn’t seen for 7 years. They had been separated in Scotland when he couldn’t secure passage to America after the outbreak of war.
Came across an article on another Shaw resident, Mary Rossman, founder of the Rossman School. (an independent, coeducational preparatory school for students in Junior Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 6, located in Creve Coeur)
So glad that Mrs. Lester fought to keep the building at 39th and Castleman – imagine what a thriving business district we might have had if more people had done the same! The priority for destroying commercial and retail in favor of creating a ‘bedroom community’- like neighborhood in Shaw seems sadly shortsighted now.
